Lawsuit in Buford Furrow slayings
There's been a lawsuit filed against an FFL in connection with the 1999 serial killings of Buford Furrow in California. The press report isn't clear (it refers to failure to complete "federal registration" forms) but it sounds as if the allegation is that the FFL didn't fill out a 4473. Whether that means entirely failed, failed partially, and whether he ran a background check or not, isn't clear from the story.
7 years -- I wonder what angle they plan to take on the statute of limitations? That's 2 years in most states, 3 in some, as I recollect. The story suggests that they may argue that it runs from discovery of the wrongful action, and they only recently discovered the 4473 issue.
